Costs and Expenses
Costs differ by program, but in most cases students are charged Knox tuition plus travel expenses. You can view the fees for the Buenos Aires, Barcelona, and Besancon programs to get an idea of costs. Check the Web sites of the programs you’re interested in, and as always contact the Center for Global Studies at 309-341-7323. Remember: any financial aid you are receiving from Knox carries over to your study abroad program!
Semesters and Credits
Even though Knox’s trimester system differs from the semesters used by many schools, we make sure the credits transfer in a way that is fair and makes sense. Be sure to attend the information session on Fall Institute day for more details.
If you are not a Knox student but want to take Knox program courses while abroad, that's fine, too! Knox program courses are on the trimester schedule -- if your school is on a semester schedule, you may take one extra class (4 per term instead of 3). This way, the number of credits you earn abroad is comparable to the number of credits you would be earning at home. Talk to your school's Global Studies department about how trimester credits will transfer from Knox.

Getting In Touch
Students can make and receive calls from a host family's home, from a phone at their college, or from a cell phone purchased abroad. Students also have easy access to the Internet. If for any reason a parent is having trouble getting in touch with their student or vice-versa, contact the program's resident director or the Center for Global Studies at Knox.
